So far our exchange had been more friendly rather than flirty, and he replied by saying the town where I was moving to wasn't so far from where he lived. Anyway I took this a a clear sign of interest (ie we couldn't see each other but maybe we could from now on.. etc) except that since he replied this he isn't giving me news and is simply ignoring me. It's not the first time he's done this actually (it's the third), and previously I had been the one to start the conversation over.
So this is it, this guy is just really confusing to me and I can't tell whether he's just being polite or if there's something behind.
He was the one to contact me back, and so far seemed interested in what I was doing.. At one point he sort of opened up on why things had ended with his former girlfriend, said he was managing well. BUT he ignores me for a month and so far I've had to initiate the conversation back twice.
I know he's busy, he has a young kid, he works, studies etc.. but I see him being active and not replying to me, and I mean who ignore someone for a month unless you really don't want to talk to them right?
So my question is; can anyone based on what I've written read him better than me and enlighten me?
What should I do then? I don't want to message him again as in "look who you forgot existed..." If he hadn't implied we would see each other I would have understood things clearly.

don't initiate the conversation again this time. if he wants to get in touch, he will. but for now, i guess you should move on. i mean, maybe go out and get your mind off of him. don't wait around. if he was interested in you, he would be more willing and less subtle, right?
I see what you mean. It's just it's kind of sad to realize that he will probably never reply and that I was actually bothering him by keeping the conversation going...
well, i guess it's his loss, and keep your chin up. :)
thank you but well it can't be his loss if he doesn't care. It's just so obvious now, I shouldn't even have asked this stupid question.
you needed clarity and that's ok. don't be too hard on yourself. and yes, it is his loss. there are things that we lose everyday, significant things that could change the path of our lives tremendously. things that could have a great affect on us. but we miss those things. and sometimes we only realise this when it's too late because life is a complicated thing, it makes us realise things when it's all too late. so don't beat yourself up about it. please. :(
It's just that after all these years I still had some feelings left for him and I thought maybe he remembered me that way too. there was a time where I could have sworn he felt at least a little something from everything he did. But well I guess it's just not the case. I still don't get why he's not more upfront and seemed eager to see me, maybe this is just me misinterpreting things. But well thank you, this is really nice.
well, it's a pleasure. and i've kind of went through the same thing you are currently going through. and i just had to move on, holding on will hurt you. and moving on wasn't nimble, it was a hard road. but i do know that you will cope. i hope you feel better soon.
